Speaking of God’s beauty

March 8, 2013 — Leave a comment

I love looking for beauty. When I do, I feel like I’m partnering with God. He created the beauty, and I’m seeing it and framing it. And there is so much beauty to find.

In his book, Scribbling in the Sand, Michael Card tells of meeting a Chinese woman who had grown up under communism where belief in God is shunned. But she said that from her childhood she found something in nature that she could not explain away. “First there was sunset that caused a deep stirring in her soul she could not put into word. Then there was a time when the simple beauty of the flowers in her mother’s garden spoke to her of a simplicity for which her heart yearned. Simply by observing the beauty in nature, she became convicted of an existence of not simply a benign God but a loving, caring father. ‘Imagine the joy I experienced when I learned that he had a name and it was Jesus.'”

I have asked the Lord for one thing – this is what I desire! I want to live in the Lord’s house all the days of my life, so I can gaze at the splendor of the Lord and contemplate in His temple. 

Psalm 27:4
